Jealousy mode: engaged

There's even a Smash Bros. deal
Back in November 2012 we had a few debates in Nintendo Life HQ around the merits of the Basic (8GB) and Premium / Deluxe (32GB) Wii U models. With just 3GB of that white system's memory surviving a launch day update it seemed downright pointless to buy a system with such a small amount of space, as it made a hard...

Game to be bundled with Wii Remote
With recently slow but top-of-the-week sales numbers in Japan, it's interesting but not surprising that Nintendo has taken a majority stake in the developer behind Wii Party, which sold more than 23,000 copies last week. The game had a particularly strong performance during its sixth week after release, shifting an...
Edge magazine gives 10/10, UK preorder bonus too
Despite pretty much universal acclaim for the first Super Mario Galaxy, it wasn't the biggest-selling game in the Wii's library, its sales eclipsed very early on by New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Peripheral to be bundled in PAL regions.
